Weston Super Maim are unveiling their debut LP, See You Tomorrow, Baby, in all its weird and technical glory for you to stream.

The U.K./U.S. based band popped up in the mid-2000s as a solo project from Tom Stevens of All Of Space an Brown Stratos, and then fully came to life in 2020 with the addition of Seth Detrick of PDP on vocals. They initially launched an EP in 2021, 180-Degree Murder, and this is their fist album release. Think techy weirdness but even weirder. And you don’t have to take our word for it, since you can stream it below.

See You Tomorrow Baby was recorded, mixed, and mastered by Stevens, with additional recording/guest spots by Stace Fifield and Stuart Henley-Minchington (Blindfolded and Led To The Woods) who provide vocals to “Autistic Kill Trance,” Chad Kapper (Frontierer) doing vocals on “Perfect Meadows In Every Direction,” and Ian Waye (Soreption) adding a guitar solo to “The Bare Maximum.” Cover art was done by collage artist JoyPolloi.

Stevens says about the album:

“We set out to make a record that goes beyond anything we’ve done before. It was a monumental undertaking—pretty much two years of living and breathing these songs—but I hope that’s what we’ve done. Seth has smashed the vocals way out of the park. His performance just elevates every track—I love all the little inflections and interesting articulations—and his lyrics are something else. Until 2023, we hadn’t even met in real life, so being able to record parts of the album together in Oregon and London was incredible, plus he’s the world’s nicest man. Working with Chad from Frontierer and Stace and Stu from Blindfolded And Led To The Woods was also a dream, and the solo from Ian of Soreption takes an already ridiculous track to an insane level. I’m proud of every song on this album, and I know there’s nothing else that really sounds like this.”

Detrick adds:

“For me, this album is very special, technically and lyrically. On one hand, I had to dig very deep to come up with a large amount of the vocal patterns because Tom decided he wanted to write a fucking calculus book. On the other, I had to unlock some very ugly moments from my past in order to convey our experiences with grief—things that I’m not very comfortable with. I hope it translates well with our listeners and that anyone who has dealt with losing a loved one understands that you can use death to restart your life.”

See You Tomorrow, Baby will be released independently this Friday. Preorder the album here.
